IOM on BBC just now


Recommended Posts

Watching a pretty tedious programme about the theft of Van Gogh paintings, just now.  One of the only known photos of Mr Big was taken in the Isle of Man, where the commentator stated, "probably there to launder his drug money and place in offshore accounts" 

They don't like us :rolleyes:

Probably true though.

That and the TT are what the Island is known for. Otherwise, no-one has heard of the place.

It did get a couple of mentions on the Sopranos. Tony's Russian accountant had set up a fund for Carmella against the day he got whacked.

And here's a picture of said crime boss on the Island. Raffaele Impieriale, AKA Pinnochio, boss in the Naples Camorra.  According to this http://gangstersinc.ning.com/profiles/blogs/italian-police-bust-drug-trafficking-camorra-clan-and-retrieve-st he invests in property on Dubai, Spain and ... Isle of Man.  He has a charming personality apparently, but I imagine that might be deceptive!
